1:38 am
animal to test positive for covid-19. what does this really mean? what does this mean to you? >> i'm not surprised at all. a tiger named nadia, had dry cough and decreased appetite and amazing they swabbed the tiger and found positive for coronavirus and turns out that one of the zoo keepers or caretakers at the zoo had coronavirus. we thought originally that the virus came from a bat or a cat or some sort of animal from the wet market in wuhan, china, this is not surprising to me at all. if you at home are watching and you have animals, pets which we love our pets and animals but if you have coronavirus or you've been exposed to it, just take the extra precaution so that you don't accidentally transmit it to your pets, but we don't have any data that shows this is

1:40 am
your household that has been diagnosed with coronavirus, you should take precautions as if you could potentially be a carrier, meaning hand hygiene, keep that physical distancing 10 feet because you could be a carrier and until we have more testing available we can only take precautions right now. rob: i want to get to one more from karen if we can. what are extra precautions i can take to boost immune system while staying home? >> you know, son-in-law of -- some of the most important things we can do is making sure you get well-balanced diet with fruits and vegetables, help your immune system safety. make sure you get enough rest. no smoking, if you can do exercise at home, squats,
1:41 am
push-ups, that's very good for you and overall if you, again, if you think you've been exposed hand hygiene, self-quarantine to keep yourself healthy so you don't develop secondary infections and prevent the spread to other people. rob: doctor, good stuff. thank you so much. carley: we will be right back. >> thank you.
